What a trip to Washington, D.C.!
I was truly honored on May 4 to have the opportunity to travel to Washington D.C., to promote the Be SMART campaign, a grassroots effort to promote gun safety around our children. I was honored to be able to make a statement to the national media about this important effort, and I
encourage you to visit www.everytown.org to learn more about it. You can also read about our press conference here: http://itbriefing.net/index.php?name=News&file=article&sid=706430&theme=Printer.
After that event, I had the opportunity to meet Erin Gruwell, the teacher whose story is portrayed in the movie “Freedom Writers.” She was in town for a conference with teachers from across the country, and she spontaneously invited me to tell my story to her audience.
Thank you to everyone with Everytown for inviting me to be a part of the Be SMART campaign, and to former National School Boards Association President Ed Massey for introducing me to Erin. It was a day I’ll never forget!
